globalization leads to inequalities

 http://www.nytimes.com/2012/11/21/busine…

 

In this New York Times article it talks about how the US fixation on globalization has created an inequality amongst Americans where some can’t make the money to keep up. It talks about the need for a subsidy of some sort so that people can take the jobs that need employees like manufacturing without going bankrupt. This could also come from a better education system that more people financially have access to so that the people could afford the education required for these positions and also accept the lower wage that is being asked. This way Americans can be employed rather then people who are willing to work for less in other countries.

    In the past few years, globalization has deterred many American workers from getting jobs, with a large number of those jobs in manufacturing. We are living in a society where globalization will continue to increase. The question will become how we can continue to keep jobs in the US. I feel that the two main parts to this equation are an increase in education, along with increased training in more areas that are currently advancing. One of these areas could be green technology along with jobs that include manufacturing these new technologies. With an increase in education, along with an increase in training specifically in these future, advancing technologies, we will have a better chance of keeping jobs in the US as globalization continues to occur.

    i feel as if education is going to have to take a major priority in fixing the income inequality in the United States. To just have a basic middle class job in the United States you need a college level education. I feel that along with making healthcare more affordable the best way to decrease the income gap is higher education standards. The higher educated you are in america the more likely it is for you to be employed and to use the opportunities globalization provides.
